Tori Amos, Interview & Caught a Lite Sneeze (Live) 1996
I need Tori Amos to keep me from hating the world
I need Nicki Minaj to keep me from hating myself.
beat em like dey stole sumtin
No one understands my feels like these ladies
I had an amount of energy, like a fireball that was so amped there were times I would just burn myself up and become a cinder … It took me a long while to really know how not to burn myself up. There is a self-righteousness that can come so much from a person’s 20’s. When I was 20, I was pretty self-righteous.

John Brennan’s career spans from the dark days of Bush’s torture program to Obama’s secretive ‘kill list’
At a White House ceremony on Monday afternoon, President Obama officially nominated his top counterterrorism advisor John Brennan to be the next director of the CIA.
In his assessment of the decision, the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald argues that it should not be shocking that Brennan—who was withdrawn from consideration for CIA chief in 2008 because of his association with the CIA’s torture program under President Bush—has now been brought back by President Obama in 2013.
Greenwald called Obama’s nomination of Brennan a “symptom of Obama’s own extremism [in the controversial areas of torture, targeted killings, and the US drone policy], not a cause.”
I hate misogynistic pigs…….but, I also hate misandry. Like, really people? Do you not believe that men are oppressed too?
I am not saying this because I’m a man……because I’m not a man. I am a female. And this is why I think we should all get on broad the men’s rights activism train.
I see your point. The thing is, I think most men who are raped are raped by other men. So really, men are the perpetrators in many of these cases as well. A lot of the problems where women are seemingly the aggressors are resulting from the oppression women face in the first place. Not saying we should accept those crimes, but there’s something to be said about it. Also, I wonder how many female rapists are really mysandrists. are they raping men because they hate men? or are there other factors? It’s not that women can do no wrong, but i think women do wrong for different reasons than men who do wrong. they come from different worlds. But I do agree that men can be victims in some cases, and they cannot be ignored. I am a man who recognizes sexism and misogyny on a regular basis. I am also a victim of rape, and know that men can be just as cruel to other men as they are to women.
Also, a funny thing i just noticed. Misogyny is recognized as an English word in this post, but misandry has a squiggly red line under it, and i’m not spelling it wrong. Something to be said about that?
If a guy sucks at a game, it’s because he sucks at the game. If a girl sucks at a game, it’s because she’s a girl and her delicate ladyfingers can’t POSSIBLY handle a controller.
The following is a hypothetical scenario made from previous Tumblr experiences:
A teenage black girl sits on her computer in her home with an internet connection in the United States of America.
As she blogs on Tumblr, she types a rant about cultural appropriation and how racist it is..

it’s true. not to say you don’t feel pain, but if you’re white you live in a completely different world than racial minorities do. And it’s fucking wrong.
